Five Cheese Macaroni, The Cheese Bar

There’s nowhere we’d rather go for a cheesy, indulgent dinner than The Cheese Bar in Camden. These cheese maestros have mastered the art of cheese in every form, from oozy fondue to grilled cheeses packed with a kick, and their mac and cheese number is certainly up there as a menu highlight. 

Their version comes packed with a five cheese blend, featuring the likes of Montgomery’s Ogleshield, Quicke’s Cheddar, Lincolnshire Poacher, Brue Valley Mozzarella and Cornish Kern. Plus on Mondays it’s only £6!

Lobster Macaroni Cheese, Bob Bob Ricard

Renowned as the restaurant behind the ‘Press for Champagne’ button, Bob Bob Ricard has become a favourite amongst the foodie set and keen Champagne drinkers. 

As if you couldn’t get more indulgent than mac and cheese, Bob Bob Ricard decided to throw lobster into the mix too. Expect a four cheese blend of cheddar, mozzarella, gruyère and parmesan mixed with fresh lobster.

The Magic Mushroom, Anna Mae’s 

Transportable mac and cheese? Yes please! Anna Mae’s has made a name for itself in the cheese world. You’ll often find their truck parked up at festivals and markets, serving up some of the best oozy mac and cheese that London has to offer. 

We love The Magic Mushroom pot. It’s packed with mac and porcini mushrooms, black truffle and grana padano d.o.p.

The Mac Daddy, Dirty Bones 

Food doesn’t come as dirty or indulgent as Dirty Bones. Inspired by the comfort food sold in New York, Dirty Bones set up shop in London, bringing with them hearty dishes and cocktails that pack a punch. 

Level up your burger experience and try The Mac Daddy. The bun is stacked with a double brisket and dry-aged steak burger that’s topped with pulled beef short rib, mac & cheese and espresso-spiked BBQ sauce. If that doesn’t have your mouth watering, their mac and cheese side made with aged and smoked cheddar and topped with parmesan breadcrumbs will.

Vegan Mac n Cheese, The Vurger Co. 

Vegans needn’t miss out on all of the macaroni fun. The Vurger Co. has two delicious mac ‘n’ cheese options to devour alongside one of their legendary burgers. First up is the original made with house-made ‘cheese’ sauce infused with truffle oil before being topped with vegan parm. 

Or, try their bacon Mac n cheese – topped with delicious crispy ‘bacon’ lardons – yum.

Truffle Macaroni Cheese, Balthazar

Truffle and macaroni cheese go hand in hand. It’s like two indulgences in one – what’s not to love? For those wanting to go all out, head to Covent Garden’s Balthazar for a mac to remember. 

Essentially a poshed up version of the comforting classic, make sure you add truffle to your order -you won’t regret it. And if that gives you a taste for more, these are the best truffle menus in London this season.

The Mac Factory

Mac and cheese enters a whole new level: The Mac Factory in Camden has changed the way we think about this cheesy comfort food. They’ve created the most delicious base and then you can load it up with their house favourites, from the ‘posh spice’, a pot topped with spicy chorizo, harissa and caramelised onion to the ‘hey mac-arena’ topped with smokey chipotle beef chilli con carne, tortilla chips, sour cream and jalapenos.

Trap Kitchen

For London’s dirtiest mac and cheese, take a trip to Trap Kitchen. This place is legendary for its sauce-slathered fried foods and indulgent lobsters that look like they’ve been plucked from a mukbang show. 

Order one of their combo meals – we’d recommend the ‘slab’ packed with lobster tail, snow crab cluster and hot sauce and butter – and pair it with a side of their rich, creamy and overly delicious mac and cheese.
